This year we are planning to do, hopefully, two longish cycle tours (if things work out!), interspersed with shorter weekend cycle/camping trips. It might be that we only manage to fit in just one long trip, but if you don’t make plans, you won’t do anything!
One of the longer trips in the planning is the Outer Hebrides, which are off the west coast of Scotland. As we will be halfway there when we go to the UK’s first ever Cycle Touring Festival being held in May in Clitheroe, Lancashire (see my previous post), it makes sense to continue the journey and drive on up to Oban for the ferry to the Hebridean Islands. The second, much longer, trip is The Rhine Cycle Route, (EuroVelo 15), from source to sea through Switzerland, France, Germany and the Netherlands.
We are still very much at the planning stage and need to sort out the logistics. If any of you have done either of these trips, we would appreciate any hints / tips / useful info you can pass on.
What I’m also going to do is to document the trip/trips photographically and also film the journeys. So, as they say, watch this space!!
